The Embassy of Canada in Kuwait is pleased to announce the successful conclusion of the eighth annual Middle East Education Initiative (MEEI), which took place on the 29 and 30 October, 2013.
During the fair, representatives from over 15 leading Canadian universities and colleges were on hand to meet with students, parents and other members of the education community, and to provide information about opportunities for studying in Canada. The two-day MEEI tour included school visits and a Study in Canada fair at the Marina Hotel in Salmiya.
Quality education is available throughout Canada, and each of the 10 provinces and 3 territories has something exciting to offer. With its safe and welcoming environment and affordable tuition fees, Canada remains a top destination for international students wishing to pursue their studies abroad.
